    Hoping for a KoTOR MMO. Will probably end up being a Clone Wars kiddie MMO.

    Guess we will know soon enough. :cool:

    All we know is that it's for PC right now.

    I'm sad they did not continue the original story arc in single player format, but we'll see what comes of this.

    Well you can play Republic or Sith. Glad they did that. But not enough info out yet to determine if it going to be dumbed down as far as MMOs go.

    They don't talk about game play or mechanics at all yet so it's hard to say where this will go but, I am very interested.

    I just hope it's not a million Jedi and Sith running around rampant... It does look pretty good so far from what little we know. Bioware mentioned that it's going to have more content than all of their games put together. Hero class talk sounded interesting. Guess we'll see as they release more details.

    The red flags are going up. They are talking about npc companions. Starting to sound like a single player game you play with a bunch of other people. :(

    NPC Companions? ZOMG, it's Guild Wars, oh wait, it's WoW Hunters, oh wait it's WoW Warlocks.

    This seems interesting... though not interested unless there's a mac port.

    I don't like MMOs (I have something against paying for things over the long term), but i really liked KOTOR. So, decisions decisions.

    It will really matter to me how much the story comes into play, what platforms it will be available on, and the subscription model is. Nevertheless, I'm a huge fan of the KOTOR series.

    I hear ya. The only MMO I liked was Guild Wars.

    Look, all I wanted to a new KOTOR game, single player, that didn't suck and didn't leave me hanging like the last one. Was that too much to ask? Apparently so... :rolleyes:

    But think of how well Galaxies did:rolleyes:, I'm sure that this one is going to be from some of the same people.

    I recently read the article in the 2008 Holiday Edition of PC Gamer. PCGamer was in their standard "hype mode", just like for all most every MMO to come down the pike. Back in the day, I had a choice of WoW or SW Galaxies. I chose WoW and never regretted it. I think Galaxies has/had some major issues. I'd love to get sucked into the Star Wars World, but I'm understandably hesitant.
